Painting the heavens : art and science in the age of Galileo by Eileen Adair Reeves( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable astronomical discoveries made by Galileo with the new telescope in 1609-1610 led to his famous disputes with philosophers and religious authorities, most of whom found their doctrines threatened by his evidence for Copernicus's heliocentric universe. In this book, Eileen Reeves brings an art-historical perspective to this story as she explores the impact of Galileo's heavenly observations on painters of the early seventeenth century

Far from every strife: Kepler's search for harmony in an age of discord by Aviva Tova Rothman( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation focuses on Johannes Kepler's all-encompassing notion of harmony. By exploring Kepler's place within different kinds of communities--astronomical, religious, and political--it highlights his efforts both to reveal the harmony in nature and to work toward a worldly harmony that might follow from it. The project situates Kepler alongside the varying ways to imagine community in early modern Europe, from religious utopianism to irenicism, and from the scholarly Republic of Letters to the nascent scientific society. In so doing, it not only illuminates Kepler's larger context and goals, but also the broad relationship between science, religion, and politics in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries
